One from the vaults... Fri, 07/2/04 10:43 PM (permalink)
While growing up in Hawaii, I frequented (read: went whenever I could con my parents into it) a burger outfit called Check Burger. Maybe. Coulda been Chek Burger, Czech Burger, or none of the above. I know for a fact that that the burger I loved was the Check (Chek? Czech?) burger. The thing that made it different, and special, was it that it was served with a fried egg on it. Fantastic stuff, but the only other 2 people I know who remember it are my parents. Any ideas???

    Well, you could always grill a hamburger patty and top it with a fried egg.

      The "Red Robin" chain has a burger similiar to what you describe, also. (Royal Red Robin Burger)

        That would probably fall as short as my teenage attempts to assemble an egg mcmuffin at home.

          Sounds like a variation of the Hawaiian "Loco Moco"-----a patty with a fried egg on top of it.

            Having lived in Hawaii, I will always have a soft spot for Loco Moco.

            and Spam...I love Spam.

            Poi, however, is/was/will always be wrong.
